The Poison Pillar is the unofficial name given to rocky, hole-ridden outcrops found throughout the world.


Poison Pillars emit a steady cloud of Poison Gas. In some areas, the gas may extend outward further than where the poison pillars are located.

They are usually found in groups, typically around various collectibles and exploration rewards that can be found around the map: Somersloops, Mercer Spheres, Power Slugs, and Crash Sites.


The Poison Pillar is immune to all weaponry (such as the Xeno-Zapper or Rebar Gun) including Chainsaw or Nobelisk Detonator. As such, it is impossible to be removed using vanilla methods in the current stage.

A Gas Mask is necessary to navigate in Poison Gas to prevent taking damage. Driving a vehicle through a poison gas can still take damage.


  • Small structures, such as Power Poles or Conveyor Poles, can be built on top of Poison Pillars.
